The average weight of a baby in the UK is around 7lb 7oz (3.5 kg).

Prince William weighed 7lb 1.5oz in 1982, while the Prince of Wales weighed 7lb 6oz in 1948.

Prince Harry weighed 6lb 14oz in 1984.

The Queen – then Princess Elizabeth – was born by Caesarean section in her maternal grandparents’ London home in 1926 and was also third in line to the throne at the time, but her weight was not announced, as was previously the custom for royal babies.

Subsequent babies are usually bigger than first-born babies and weigh in about 138g (5oz) heavier, said.
